'World Class Skills: Implementing the Leitch Review of Skills in England (Cm. 7181)' sets out a plan for England in developing world class employment skills. It is a companion document to the Green Paper 'In Work, Better Off: Next Steps to Full Employment (Cm. 7130)' (ISBN 0101713029), and follows on from the 'Leitch Review of Skills: Prosperity for All in the Global Economy – World Class Skills – Final Report (ISBN 0118404865), both of which are available below. This publication aims to explain how the Government will provide the right supporting framework to act as a catalyst for a skills revolution.
More than a third of adults in the UK do not have the equivalent of a basic school-leaving certificate; 6.8 million people have serious problems with numbers and 5 million people are not functionally literate. As part of this development, the Government has set out new rights that learners and employers will have, under what are called Skills Accounts and the Skills Pledge.
The Skills Accounts will be part of the new adults careers service done through Jobcentre Plus, which aims to give every adult easy access to skills and careers advice. The Skills Pledge enables employers to demonstrate their commitment to improving skills in their workplace, with the Government supporting employers through Train to Gain brokerage. Current funding entitlement for adults to free training in basic literacy and numeracy skills will also be strengthened under these plans.
